john mccain. i told you it would come to this and now we've got the proof on camera. a party that spits at its leaders listens only to the loudest, angriest person in the back row. boehner is nothing to this crowd. it never heard of kantor. mitch mcconnell, a nobody. what matters to the republican far right are the few to dare to be even further right. now the huffington post editorial director. the 2013 version of john mccain version took on his constituents who looked like a room full of right wing 2010 mccains with their anti-immigrant build a fence talk. here's a bit of his exchange, if you want to call it that, with angry right wing tea partiers. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop 'em? because the only thing that stops 'em, i'm afraid to say, and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop 'em. >> the border is 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how many troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think would be required, but i'll give you expert information that shows you that probably maybe you're talking about t
put it beautifully. john reese, in fact, it deserves a lot of praise. here's john mccain. >> john mccain did what he could to get reelected. and now he's confronting his old self as he argue ts with the guy he was a few year as i go. and john mccain has never been good for hiding his anger or contempt for people he considers in his way. >> he said to build that dang fence. >> joan mccain is the perfect expression, the perfect embodiment of the kind of schizophrenia. >> he's also a guy who wants to get deals done. >> he can't do that. he's in many ways, an admirable senator. let's take a look at je krkkel hyde here. he once committed the crime of working with ted kennedy. watch this. >> they are going to be on medicare, welfare and food stamps. and you know it. >> again, sir, you're not telling these people the truth. they mow our lawns, they care for our babies. >> you're a senator with the federal government and you're doing nothing about it. you said build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> it's not a fence? it's a banan
. the president's nominee to replace leon panetta as defense secretary. kelly o'donnell has more. >> john mccain seized on hagel's vocal opposition to the surge of troops in iraq in 2007. >> the question is were you right or wrong? that's a pretty straight forward question. >> well, i'm not going to give you a yes or no answer. >> over his 2008 comments related to israel that a "jewish lobby," "intimidates a lot of people in congress." >> name one person in your opinion who is intimidated by the israeli lobby in the united states senate. >> well, first -- >> name one. >> i don't know. >> hagel was repeatedly pressed by both democrats and republicans to make clear his commitment to israel's security. >> i strongly support israel. >> and clarify his stand on iran. he incorrectly referred to the policy on iran and nuclear weapons as containment. >> i've just been handed a note that i misspoke. >> reporter: he said he fully backs the president's position that iran cannot be allowed to get nuclear weapons and says the u.s. should talk to iran. >> that's kelly o'donnell reporting. >>> three stories th
, we've been kvetching and bitching and complaining for the last week or so about john mccain, you know, loser from 2008 who is still the face of the republican party. you never see mitt romney. talk about a loser. but mccain and they keep putting him out there on the sunday shows every sunday, every show. every day every show. overexposure for a guy who's got nothing more -- nothing to say anymore. and talk about people who have nothing to say anymore, here's the big one. cpac conservative political action committee which has its huge gathering of conservatives it is a big event here in washington, d.c., every year in march. this year, yesterday they announced the headliner the keynote speaker for this year's cpac event, sarah palin. >> no! >> bill: talk about the number one loser. here she is, four years ago -- i'm sorry, last year at cpac -- >> at the 1975cpac, he laid out a blueprint for rebuilding the g.o.p. under a banner of full color. and ever since then, cpac has been the rally for conservative action and that's why i'm glad to be here today with all of you conservative activis
. and the gop is losing latino support. john mccain got 31%. romney only got 27%. i suspect that rubio is not only being used for his talents. >> i think the republicans are trying to rebrand this. but let's look at rubio's numbers. rubio, among the latinos in florida, he overwhelmingly won the cuban vote. but he didn't win the rest of the latino vote. when you look at history where he actually looks at, he attacks, for example, private education. and i think, again, that's the only way you're going to win the latino vote is to start talking to them straight. >> is he a leading contender for 2016. and does this further embellish if he does well on tuesday night? >> again, they're reintroducing the brand. and he's the headliner for that. he can't backtrack like he did so quickly on immigration. >> so on climate change and a lot of things, he's all over the place. >> he basically has to identify the problem with the republican party. i also encourage him to start talking a little bit about he keeps saying he doesn't believe in govt entitlement programs. unfortunately, right now, the gove
john mccain, lindsey graham and marco rubio who just last weekend called the president's plan, quote, half-baked and seriously flawed. the president told those senators he shares their commitment to overhauling u.s. policy. after the call, senator rubio's office put out a statement that reads, in part, "the senator told the president he feels good about the ongoing negotiations in the senate, and is hopeful the final product is something that can pass the senate with strong bipartisan support." senator mccain spent the day in town halls in arizona. the senator encountered crowds who made their anger known about the state of immigration in america and particularly in arizona. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say, and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop them. >> the border is 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how many troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think would be required, but i'll give you expert information that shows you that probabl
john mccain and jeff lake, that's an encouraging thing. the gun safety thing is more important. coming from a state like arizona where we have a gun culture, it's not about taking people's guns away, it's about imposing common sense changes to legislation to background checks and to making sure we're reducing the easy availability of assault weapons and extended magazines. these are not things when you go hunting. they are not things you need for self-defense. >> zach walls, thank you and thank you for joining us in the studio tonight. >> coming up, how afraid is karl rove of ashley judd? he's running ads against her before she's even decided whether she's going to run for office. and the politically brave decision that has cost andy cuomo 15 points in the polls. [ whispering ] i've always preferred the crème part of an oreo. [ whispering ] that's crazy, the cookie's the best part. crème. cookie. crème. cookie. [ whispering ] crème. [ whispering ] cookie.

go ahead. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was senator john mccain grilling his old friend chuck hagel last week at hagel's confirmation hearing. the senate armed services committee was supposed to vote today on hagel's nomination to head the pentagon, but that vote has been postponed after republicans said they hadn't received sufficient information about hagel's financial records and specifically about any payments he's received from foreign sources. that's an odd hurdle given that republicans never seem concerned about foreign revenue sources when it came to nominees from george w. bush. one democratic official working on the hagel nomination told politico, quote, what they're asking is unprecedented, and it's clear that it's information that he's unable to provide. hagel says he can't provide it because it would violate confidentiality of the boards that he serves on. of course, critics say this is about more than incomplete financial records. so why are republicans really holding up hagel's nomination? aaron david miller is vice president for new initiatives at the woodrow w
. or as john mccain likes to tweet it, #obamaquester. >> both sides are digging in for the next washington crisis. >> it is still the economy. >> doomsday machine. >> 85 billion in cuts. >> what's getting cut? the pentagon. >> we're only a few weeks away from this. >> it doesn't make any political sense. >> it would be brutal for everybody. >> devastatiing effects on the economy. >> pushes us into a second recession, something so terri e terrible -- >> all right. settle down. >> they recognize that the sequester is a bad idea. >> i don't like the sequester. >> we see the republicans playing games. >> this is the wrong time for sequest sequestration. >> both sides are sort of okay with it. >> doing nothing is easier than doing something. >> republicans say cuts but no taxes. >> these cuts cost job. >> they don't even want to talk about it. >> who are the monsters who came up with the sequestration idea? >> guess what, they all support it. congress put it into place to force themselves to agree. >> dumbe esest blame game in washington. >>> it's time for another round of republican would you
. not all of them. you have people like john mccain -- describe the fall but a lot of republicans, privately and publicly, saying that there is room to cut the -- >> as long as you don't -- as long as you hold harmless with everything that deals with troop readiness, that deals with troops on the front lines and military families but there's plenty of room in the procurement budgets, there's plenty of room for reforms and for -- >> i want to come to that in a second, but the problem will be, i think for the white house, broadly and for the country is the point that congressman ellison makes, you hit the sequester right now, that is goign to have a real economic impact right away. >> absolutely, absolutely, and i think you'll hear the president most likely talk about that on tuesday night, tuesday night. we can't have any more self-inflicted wounds on the economy. the economy is poised to take off. if we do the right things. having massive across-the-board cuts to some critical programs i mean you're talking about education, health care, that things that actually we need, cops, to make this -
, john mccain, and todd coburn have all told us they would oppose a filibuster if it came to that. we don't know when the vote will happen. first he has to go through committee. that will likely happen later this week. the senate vote will happen shortly after that. this is, again, some really enterprising reporting from our producers, ted stray felt and rachel bashaw. >>> looking better for chuck hagel. wouldn't have to worry about a filibuster. even though someone like john mccain wouldn't vote for a filibuster, it's at least clear to me based on his questioning and statements, he won't vote at the same time to confirm him either. >> correct. that's correct. when it comes to the floor, would he vote against -- potentially vote against. he hasn't said that for sure. potentially vote against hagel's nomination. the question at this point is whether or not hagel would be blocked altogether, whether or not they could get to that point. mccain has said he would not participate in that kind of filibuster. >> maybe we can forget about a filibuster. dan i dana doing excellent reporting. >>> a c
for that whole -- john mccain had all of that -- angry leprechaun, fake outrage. >> it is not the policy. >> senator. >> stephanie: he tweeted about that. the late night tweeter did. >> you know who might run? did you see that? tagg romney. >> stephanie: oh, that. or ann. >> stop it. this is hard. >> ann: stop it. this is hard. you want to try it, get in the ring. this is hard. >> stephanie: they're talking to ann and tagg. and flirn or flag, too. >> what expertise would they bring? >> stephanie: that's what i'm wondering. >> the governorship of massachusetts. >> stephanie: go with ann. she's so warm. [ laughter ] >> stop it. >> ann: stop it! >> stephanie: speak of somebody who i think will be back in elected office, outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i am very proud to have been secretary of state. i will miss you. i will probably be dialing ops just to talk. >> stephanie: go take a nap and then let's go. hillary, 2016. >> she's already getting the infrastructure in place. you know that. >> stephanie: take a nappy. we got this! all right. senator mike from nebraska will sup
to know that your president is going to survive four years. >> remember carol when we talked about john mccain's age. that came up. it was a realistic concern for people. ronald reagan, obviously. i think this is going to hold chris christie back if he has further applebitions to be president. i think we know he does. but it is out of line for someone like that doctor to diagnose, we have a lot of radio shows that diagnose people based on the way they look. it's irresponsible and doctors that know better wouldn't do that kind of thing. chris christie, again, i think he's a role model and could do a lot. he doesn't have to. but he could show people how hard he is trying to lose weight. i also understand how much of a struggle it is, it is difficult emotionally and physically. >> he was elected governor. would you have thought he would have been elected? >> it's fine to be governor, but that's different -- you are running against a president who was in office, who used to come out of the water like bo derek in hawaii. if chris christie doesn't fix it, it will be a problem. >> he's the governor.
john mccain and jeff flake, the two senators from arizona, having to sort of go back and forth and back and forth and slowly move their constituents along. and the way they do that is by talking tough on the border. >> yes. and this is politics playing out. right after the election, even sean hannity said well, maybe i'm for some kind of a border thing. the people in the republican party voting in these republican primaries, they're not sold on this. and i think senator mccain found that when he went back to arizona. it's going to happen time and time again. and they do have to bring them along. >> it's going to be tough in louisiana, too, isn't it? >> very. >> mary landrieu. is mary, the democratic senator, going to talk about we need immigration reform? >> i'll let her speak for herself. the argument to make is you're rewarding people out of here illegally. that's not what you should do. there are many arguments against that that i agree with. she's right, the border, for whatever reason, it might be because of our economy. it might be because of increased security. it might be becaus
